They're DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After fighting the heatshield bolt some dumbass put behind the pullies and directly under a radiator hose,the rear crossover bolts that broke,the bolt that holds the EGR on,the stud right below the EGR pipe that has no firewall clearance,the downpipe nuts I had to fight because heatcycling had them almost seized on there and the sun beating down on me giving me a splitting headache and me getting frustrated and extremely tired.

My head is still killing me and so is my back. If those manifolds come off,someone will have to take them off or thery will fall off

Bill,I'm suprised your not in the hospital with third degree burns on the sides of your head. Ya know they say if your ears are burning,someone is talking about ya.
I know after this afternoon I'm going to hell because I don't think I have ever said G*DD***IT so many times in one day in all of my life


All that being said..................

Thanks for the push Bill. I love 'em

A little throatier to me.
They seemed to take some of the harshness out since they flow better

I bet it sounds awesome. My idle sounds good, but I feel that my Flowmaster sounds a little canny when getting on it a little bit, we'll see what it gets replaced with when it goes while in my possesion.

I got mine when Travis lanz owned hulkspeed. He'* partnered up with another guy and they formed http://www.gtpowderworks.com/ .

Here'* the link to their manifold page

The ones I just put on are the aluminum ceramics at 225.00. They are predominately W body so contact them first. I had to help find the ones I got. I finally wound up getting them from Ed Morad and Hulkspeed did all of the work

I told you at SEBF that they would be a PITA, I bet you're glad you waited till it was scorching hot outside to put them on, lol. I had The same problems with the bolts being seized on, but I'm glad my motor was out of the car
